Miley Cyrus‘ BANGERZ review by New York Daily News: As you might guess, it’s a mixed bag, the better to hedge as many bets as possible. As the former teen idol promised, roughly a quarter of the disc draws from the low-down sound of..
..hip-hop’s dirty south. That may seem like a bit of an odd choice, given the style’s wizzened age. But a star this wily knows better: It’s new to her demo, one that only recently scored the paper work to enter their first strip clubs legally.
Whenever Miley goes for such raw sexual moments, in a range it styles, it sounds nearly as forced as that MTV performance looked. And, of course, it’s important to remember, that no one on the planet actually liked that performance. They just couldn’t stop talking about it, which, apparently, counts for more.
Passages like this suggest Miley could have come up with an album that has more of the musicality of her vocal peers, like Ariana Grande or Demi Lovato. But, it seems, she has already chosen her road. And it’s one geared more to provoke that to move.
